How can you make the world better than you found it?
Motivated by tragedy, youth transform to find their true self and become self-supporting, successful, community-minded, “compassionate people”.
Scott Foundation has big aspirations and a different path for Arizona foster youth. We imagine a journey that changes the face of humanity and inspires our kids to be their absolute best today while making tomorrow's world a much better place for all. We imagine an education and societal system focused on the power of community rather than competition; and we imagine a world where children are taught we are not separate, but instead, we are all a part of something much bigger than ourselves - we are one.

Our tax dollars today direct OVER A HALF A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR PER CHILD to serve and keep kids in the system. Each of these below, additionally has a financial incentive to keep beds and seats full.
Can you imagine the impact if we re-directed tax dollars to invest in these kids to successfully graduate community-mind, "whole-people" that become leaders of change?
The time is NOW to build a Culture of Community to support kids. Join us as we create a loving sustainable system that will soon render the existing systems obsolete.
Scott Foundation takes its commitment to the kids and community seriously. Too many youth are exposed to violence, poverty and crime, which in most cases leads to them repeating the cycle.
Our goal is to nurture a child’s compassionate heart with moral education, lessons in peace-building and selfless service through a program that provides direct experience of the inner values of self-awareness, peace, love, unity and selfless service.
Offering inner experiences with the creative arts whereby children become motivated to help others through selfless service. With the foundation of mindfulness, children learn to love themselves and build empathy and compassion through this program’s nurturing of their inherent goodness.
Our desired outcome breaks the cycle of poverty and violence and mindfully develops the heart and purposeful career path of foster kids. Finding true self, they become successful community-minded, "whole-people" with significantly decreased addictive and violent behaviors. This helps prevent the future need for more costly social and criminal justice services. These developing leaders step forward and ready to bring about social change; they are our next generation Thought & Service Leaders.
